How to Plan the Perfect Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is almost here! We know you would give your mom the world if you could, but a trip to Frederick’s BEST day spa can be just as good! 😉 If you haven’t had a chance to view our complete Mother’s Day gift guide click here to browse a variety of options and/or purchase a gift certificate for Mom.

Once you’ve made your choice, it’s time to make sure her day here at the spa is the best one yet. Here are a few tips we recommend so Mom enjoys herself to the fullest!

Scheduling Tips:

1. If you’re scheduling the spa day for Mom, make sure child care is covered!  The last thing Mom needs to worry about while she’s relaxing is the kids. Pro tip* Don’t bug mom while she’s here with us.  Keep texts to a minimum so she can fully immerse herself in our environment.

2. New Mom? Let us know if the Mom you’re scheduling for is a nursing mom. We can build time into her spa schedule so she can pump in a private area.

3. Mom will need to eat if she’s here all day.  Some of our packages include lunch, but not all of them.  If you’re booking in a lunch time frame, make sure to send your mom/wife with snacks or ask our coordination team to add lunch to your tab.  Let us know in advance if there are any dietary restrictions or allergies we need to know about. Pro Tip* Plan a dinner at one of Downtown Frederick’s amazing restaurants after her spa day.  Include a hair blowout if you want her to be presentable to the public after such a relaxing day.

4. Is this a surprise?  Make sure to discuss confirmation preferences with our coordinators. Our automated system sends multiple confirmation texts and emails prior to the service.  If you want to keep it a secret, we recommend turning notifications off so no surprises get ruined!

5. We have the space to accommodate parties!  If the moms on your list would enjoy coming in together, let our coordinators know and we’ll plan their services accordingly. Pro Tip* The salon does not provide champagne or wine, but guests are permitted to bring their own.  Send your party in with a bottle of champagne to really wow them!

6.  Last, but not least.  Make sure this is something Mom would enjoy prior to scheduling.  We have a 24 hour cancellation policy and in the event of a cancellation, we charge 50% of services scheduled.  If you’re not sure Mom wants to come in, or that a certain day would work.  Hold off on scheduling.  We’d much rather issue a refund for your gift card than cancel an appointment. Pro Tip* Our gift cards never expire and are transferable.  If Mom isn’t quite ready, she has plenty of time to schedule or pick a different service that suits her.

Once you’ve picked the package for the mom(s) on your list, our coordinators will do the rest. You can never go wrong by treating Mom to Frederick’s Best Luxury Day Spa, a day she will never forget! Xoxo, Lisa – Director of Operations
